Thanks, Jen, wish I could play a cello. I'm a listener and appreciater of music, not a player anymore. What I'd love to find is an interview with Yo-Yo Ma about the carbon instrument. Will let you know if I do!
Jennifer--This looks like a fascinating convention. Thank you for the slides. I definitely think the political types and talking heads in Washington need to step back and take another other look at American ingenuity--American creativity. At times, it seems they have relegated manufacturing to the endangered species list when in reality, it's alive and well and in some circles thriving. Your slides certainly bring that into focus. I write a blog on engineering education in our country and across the world and we remain the example for the civilized world. We are what they hope to be--someday. Again, many thanks for the update.
Jim, thanks for the links. That's about what I would have guessed based on the difference in materials: wider operating temperature/humidity range, but less rich/complex sound quality. That shows up in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLOvXfSFuL0 of Yo-Yo Ma playing the divine Bach on a carbon cello.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
